If Time is relative, is Space too??

Time is a human - and Sumerian - invention. Hence, the use of their Base-60 system (eg, 60 minutes, 60 seconds). The relativity of Time (eg, Albert Einstein, James Clerk Maxwell, Quanta) makes you wonder about the relativity of Space. Humans are unaware of the dimensions of our universe (eg, ball, cubicle, saddle, sphere). It’s important to realise that my examples...

Tijd voor verandering

Vanaf volgde week stop ik met schrijven. In ieder geval tijdelijk. Ik voel dat het tijd is voor verandering. Mijn inspiratie is al langer niet wat ie was.

Does the Universe has a universal time?

Time is a human concept. It was invented by the Sumerian civilisation (c.5000 BC - c.1500 BC), or an unknown older civilisation. Time is also a mathematical concept, representing galactic orbits and distances. The Sumerian Base-60 system explains our use of 60 minutes and 60 seconds. Hence, each galaxy is likely to have its own - and mathematically matching -...

China’s new social contract

On October 21, Bloomberg sent me an email newsletter, entitled China's new social contract. I was immediately reminded of the new Dutch political party with the same name: New Social Contract. In my view, that party is vague in its ambitions. I have a similar feeling about China's new ambitions. In my view, any society that hinders a market economy is doomed to...
